Dustin Hoffman - Little Big Man (1970)


To obtain the hoarse voice of a 121-year-old man, Hoffman sat in his dressing room and screamed at the top of his lungs for an hour. 

The makeup for the ancient Crabb was created by Dick Smith from foam latex and included revolutionary false eyelids that could blink along with the actor's. 

Due to editing, and much to Smith's chagrin, no blinks were visible in the finished film. 

Of the makeup, Hoffman was quoted in Life as saying, "I defy you to put on that makeup and not feel old".
